Do I Need a Criminal Lawyer if I Plan to Plead Guilty?
Yes. Regardless of whether you plan to plead guilty or not guilty, you have rights that need to be protected by an experienced lawyer. The criminal legal process can be complex and stressful, so it’s important to have someone on your side to guide you through to the completion of your case and pursue the best possible outcome for your situation.
I’ve Been Arrested. Should I Talk to the Police?
No! The police are not your friends, and trying to talk your way out of custody is not going to work. The best thing you can do in this situation is to politely (but firmly) decline to answer any questions until you’ve contacted an attorney. The Fifth Amendment exists to give you the right to remain silent, so make sure you exercise that right.
What's the Difference Between a State Crime and a Federal Crime?
Crimes may be prosecuted at either the state or federal level. If you commit a violation of a state law here in Florida, your case can be prosecuted within the state court system. Federal crimes, no matter where they are committed, are crimes against the laws of the entire country. These crimes are pursued in the Federal court system by the U.S. Attorney's Office.
